Nutritional advice for your dog or cat
Nutrition plays an increasingly important role in the treatment of various conditions in pets. These include problems such as cystitis, osteoarthritis, obesity or skin problems. There are various medicated feeds that are formulated to, for example, dissolve stones in the bladder, keep cartilage in better condition so that your dog or cat is less painful when walking, contain fewer calories or keep skin in better condition with the addition of omega-3 fatty acids. Sometimes just a change of food is enough to keep issues under control.
But which diet is best for your pet? The choice is vast and as an owner it is often very difficult to make a responsible choice. What should you pay attention to? Can it (not) hurt that your pet eats the same food every day? Is that nice-looking bag in the supermarket any good or is it better to follow the advice of your vet or the pet shop? Do you want start feeding raw meat, because it is the most natural without all kinds of (perhaps harmful) additives? The amount of food and the optimal composition of the diet changes throughout your pet’s life. And then, of course, there are personal preferences… What a challenge!
We get a lot of questions about nutrition. Whether it is to lose weight, to guide the growth of a new puppy or to put together the optimal diet for that old cat that has kidney problems or osteoarthritis. Or for that picky Labradoodle who is also allergic. It takes quite some time to calculate all that manually and it is certainly not always easy. We therefore work with Feedwise.

Tailor-made nutritional programmes
We offer advice and support in three different programmes:
Our nutritional consult answers all your one-off questions. For example, questions about the composition, quantity, or suitability of a particular diet. This could be about your pet’s current diet, if you would like to switch diets or if you plan to put together your pet’s diet yourself.

Did you know that growing slowly is often better for your puppy or kitten than growing fast? The effects of this can be seen in the skeleton later in life. But what is slow growth, and how do you keep it under control? Our “growing responsibly” programme enables you to do just that. This programme entitles you to 10 nutritional consults in your pet’s first year of life, during which you discuss progress with our nutritionist. You also get a 10% discount on the food we sell.

Losing weight responsibly
Getting your pet to lose weight can be very difficult. And yet this is so incredibly important, as it can cause many diseases. It helps enormously when someone thinks with you. Using the BCS (Body Condition Score), we determine together how much weight your pet needs to lose and how long it will take to do so responsibly. We then help you with the amount and type of food and give you smart tips to make it easier both for the animal and for you as owner to succeed.
